good plated bullets that are at a good price?

Try West Coast bullets. Just received 160gr.FMJ-RN 40SW (500 count) & 200gr. 45ACP FMJ-RN (500 count), best plated bullets I've seen and reasonable, $63 included shipping, arrived from Nevada to New Jersey in 6 days. Have to call or email Angela, good service and products.
National Bullet Company not bad either, except you pay shipping.

Hope it helps!

I used Rainiers, until I tried West Coast plated bullets. I use them exclusively, now. National Bullet Co. bullets are washed, not plated. They will seriously lead your barrels.

I've been using West Coast bullets for loading .400 Cor-Bons. Never had any problems, even at supersonic velocities.

Thanks for the info.

I have used most of the above,except Rainer and West Coat.

I think Ranier are a little Expensive.
My Son In Law uses West Coast in 45. and 38. and likes them very well.
I have been using hardcast Ent. bullets as they are $18.00 for 500 and $34.00 1000.
But you can see they are not the best plated,
and there weight has a large range.
For cheap pot shot loads I will use them, But want to try something a little more accurate.

Any more comments Are much welcome

Thanks Guys Tony Z

I shoot the West Coast Bullet 115 gr. RN in my G17 and G34. Seems like I paid $41m del. for them. The 34 groups well with them - 2"@ 25 yds. To get my 17 to shoot that good I have to use jacketed bullets.
